1992 Topps #949 Bill Long

Bill Long pitched in the Majors from 1985 to 1991. He came up to the Big Leagues in 1985 with the Chicago White Sox. He spent 1986 in the minors. He spent 1987, 1988, and 1989 with the White Sox, and started 1990 with them, but was traded to the Chicago Cubs in April of that year. He finished the season with them and played the final season of his MLB career, 1991, with the Montreal Expos.

Bill got his first Topps card in the 1987 Topps Traded set. He got cards in the 1988, 1989, 1990, and 1991 Topps sets in his career. He is missing cards from the 1985 Topps Traded, 1986 Topps, 1990 Topps Traded, and 1991 Topps Traded set.

This 1992 Topps card is Bill's sunset card, and I would love to find a good picture of Bill with an Expos uniform on to try to remake this card with. Until then, this will do.

I have been trying to go hard-core on checklists, and have finished the 1951-2001 Topps checklists. Just 18 more to go and I will be caught up. Once they are done, I will probably work on the 1995 Topps checklist to add all of the replacement players to it, and then get back to working on customs, specifically the 1993 Topps set.

Thanks for checking out my latest post.
